On January 27, 2016 at about 5:00 p.m. the two victims, Brittany and James Arterberry were getting into their vehicle in the parking garage in the northeast corner of Northpark Mall at 8687 N. Central Expressway when the suspect vehicle drove up near them. Two Black male suspects and one Black female suspect exited the suspect vehicle described as a gray late 90’s model Buick LeSabre and approached Mrs. Arterberry. One of the suspects sprayed Mrs. Arterberry with pepper spray and attempted to take her purse. Mr. Arterberry confronted the three suspects who continued pulling on Mrs. Arterberry’s purse and jacket, almost pulling her into the suspect vehicle. A witness intervened and confronted the suspects with a pocketknife, and Mr. Arterberry was able to pull Mrs. Arterberry out of the suspect vehicle. The suspects then fled in the suspect vehicle.
The suspects are described as a Black male in his mid 30’s, 6’2” approximately 200lbs wearing a gray hoodie (thermal fabric), gray sweat pants with red on them, a B/M in his mid 20’s, 5’10” approximately 160 – 170lbs, and a B/F mid 20’s skinny and her clothing had a burnt orange or red stripe.
